Robert Preston as Centauri

  • (Robert Preston) "Alex, I want you to know that it was for the greatest good that I brought you back. Of course -- it never hurts to be rich."
  • (Robert Preston) "The amusing thing about this, it's all a big mistake. That particular Starfighter game was supposed to be delivered to Vegas, not some flea-speck trailer park in the middle of tumbleweeds and tarantulas. So it must be fate, destiny, blind chance, luck even, that brings us together. And as the poet said, "the rest is history"."
  • (Lance Guest) "Where are you going? Where are you taking me?"
  • (Robert Preston) "I told you, I want to save it for a surprise. Hey, are you the kind of kid who reads the last page of a mystery first? Who pesters the magician to tell you his tricks? Who sneaks downstairs to peek at his Christmas presents? Noooo, of course you're not."
  • (Robert Preston) "That's why I'm not gonna tell you."
  • (Lance Guest) "Oh, God."
  • (Robert Preston) "Besides, I just love surprises, don't you?"
  • (Robert Preston) "Alex. Alex. You're walking away from history. History. Did Chris Columbus say he wanted to stay home? Nooooo. What if the Wright Brothers thought that only birds should fly? And did Galoka think the Ulus were too ugly to save?"
  • (Lance Guest) "Who's Galoka?"
  • (Robert Preston) "Never mind."
  • (Lance Guest) "Listen, Centauri, I'm not any of those guys. I'm a kid from a trailer park."
  • (Robert Preston) "If that's what you think, then that's all you'll ever be."
  • (Robert Preston) "I must congratulate you on your virtuoso performance, my boy. Centauri is impressed. I've seen 'em come, and I've seen 'em go, but you're the best, my boy. Dazzling. Light years ahead of the competition. Centauri's got a little proposition for you. Are ya interested?"
  • (Robert Preston) "Little brat. I invent the game, find the kid, drag him up there, and he doesn't wanna be a Starfighter. I give up."
  • (Robert Preston) "Get a good look, Alex, you can bet your asteroids you'll be seeing more of them"
  • (Lance Guest) "What?"
  • (Robert Preston) "This is a Zando-Zan. An interstellar hit-beast. Courtesy of Xur."
  • (Lance Guest) "Xur? Why's he after me?"
  • (Robert Preston) "Somehow he found out you're a Starfighter."
  • (Beta) "You see, Alex, you've gotta go back. You stay here, you're dog meat."
  • (Robert Preston) "Trust Centauri on this, my boy. Because in two hours, this park will be crawling with ten Zando-Zans, with just one thought on their microscopic little minds: kill Alex Rogan."
  • (Robert Preston) "You still want to go? And miss all the excitement?"
  • (Robert Preston) "Greetings, Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada."

Barbara Bosson as Jane Rogan

  • (Barbara Bosson) "Alex, what is all this?"
  • (Lance Guest) "I, uh, I've been to another planet, Ma."

Dan O'Herlihy as Grig

  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "Up to your old "Excalibur" tricks again, eh, Centauri? Did it ever occur to you that it is against the law to recruit from worlds outside the Star League?"
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "The Armada will break through the Frontier here, and reach Rylos in about 20 clicks. Squadrons of deck fighters will precede the mothership."
  • (Lance Guest) "Squadrons? How many squadrons?"
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "It isn't the number of squadrons that concerns me, it's this communication turret that sends out the commands to the deck fighters, which enables them to act as one during the fight."
  • (Lance Guest) "Wait a second. We knock out the turret to get the fighters. But to get the turret, we gotta get through the fighters. We're dead."
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "I'll have it all figured out by the time we reach the Frontier."
  • (Lance Guest) "What's that?"
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "The Frontier."
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "Remember, Death Blossom delivers only one massive volley at close range -- theoretically."
  • (Lance Guest) "What do you mean, "theoretically"?"
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "After all, D.B. has never been tested. It might overload the systems, blow up the ship."
  • (Lance Guest) "What are you worried about, Grig? Theoretically, we should already be dead."
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "This, is my Wife-oid, and six thousand little grig-lets."
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "You must be Louis. I hear good things about you."
  • (Chris Hebert) "Hear that, you slimes? I'm famous."

Dan Mason as Lord Kril

  • (Dan Mason) "Damage report."
  • (George McDaniel) "Guidance system out. Auxiliary steering out."
  • (Dan Mason) "Divert. Divert."
  • (George McDaniel) "She won't answer the helm. We're locked into the moon's gravitational pull. What do we do?"
  • (Dan Mason) "We die."
  • (Dan Mason) "The last Starfighter --"
  • (Norman Snow) "Is dead. The last Starfighter is dead. Nothing can stop us now. Ahead full to Rylos."
  • (Unnamed) "-- We have a break in the Frontier."
  • (Dan Mason) "Fire the meteor gun."
  • (Norman Snow) "MY DEAR KODAN FRIENDS -- Lest we forget, it was your own Emperor who charged me with command of this armada -- For only I hold the secret to the Frontier -- Just as only I know the location of the Starfighter base -- And therefore, ONLY I WILL GIVE THE ORDER TO FIRE."
  • (Dan Mason) "Forgive me, Xur."
  • (Norman Snow) "You are forgiven, Commander Kril. Meteor gunner -- fire."

John O'Leary as Rylan Bursar

  • (John O'Leary) "Return the money, Centauri."
  • (Robert Preston) "Return the money? Are you delirious? Do you know how long it took to invent the games? To merchandise them? To get them in the stores by Christmas?"
  • (Dan O'Herlihy) "It must be terribly embarrassing for you and I do sympathize, however --"
  • (Robert Preston) "But I saw him fight. He could be the greatest Starfighter ever."
  • (Lance Guest) "That was just a game, Centauri."
  • (Robert Preston) "A game. Well, you may thought it was a game, but it was also a test. Aha, a test. Sent out across the universe to find those with the gift to be Starfighters. And here you are, my boy. Here you are."
  • (Lance Guest) "Right, here I am, about to be killed"
  • (Robert Preston) "Killed. You don't seriously think it's dangerous, do you? Don't be silly. Trust me."

Chris Hebert as Louis Rogan

  • (Chris Hebert) "What's up, Alex?"
  • (Lance Guest) "Back to sleep, Louis, or I'm telling Mom about your Playboys."
  • (Beta) "You're blowing it, Alex."
  • (Chris Hebert) "What the s***?"
  • (Beta) "I said, back to sleep Louis, or I'm telling Mom about your Playboys."
  • (Chris Hebert) "Woo. All right. We're being invaded."

Kay E. Kuter as Enduran

  • (Kay E. Kuter) "Aeons ago, our ancestors created our great Frontier, a barrier of energy encircling the peaceful systems of the Universe and forever shutting out the scourge that plagues beyond. Fellow Rylans, because of a dark betrayal -- our Frontier will soon collapse. So we turn to you, Starfighters and your Navigators, whom of all the billions of creatures in the Star League, only you few were found to possess the umm -- "gift." YOU -- and you alone -- stand between us and the black terror of the Ko-Dan. VICTORY OR DEATH."
